My Students

My students consist of wide range of specific learning disabilities. These are students who need extra love and extra resources to help guide them through grade level curriculum. Our school is located in Baldwin Park, CA. Baldwin Park is home to a population of 76,511 people. The ethnic composition of the population of Baldwin Park, CA is composed of 57,804 Hispanic residents (75.5%), 13,379 Asian residents (17.5%), 2,949 White residents (3.85%), 1,437 Black residents (1.88%), and 405 Native residents (0.53%).

My Project

I wish I had an area in my classroom to clear my head when I was student, don't you? My class consists of a variety of social-emotional disorders. There are some days where things can get busy and a bit chaotic. Being a self-contained Special Education class can be limiting at times and lead to creative ways to help the students get to a point where they are ready to learn. It is my hope to create a "calming space" in my classroom where students can privately and independently, take a break and then return to working at the task on hand. Please consider donating and help me create this space for my students.
